David is the real deal through and through. From his training to his technique, there’s nobody else like him. I work out a lot and need a massage that’s more than just a feel-good rub... this is it. Try him for the best massage you’ve had in years, maybe ever.

I’ve been a massage therapist for 20 years and very picky about being worked on myself. David came highly recommended, so I went to him last week. I was impressed by every aspect of David’s massage and of the therapist himself.

His moves were smooth, clean and confident, his technique is seasoned and his touch was nuanced and fully connected.

He didn’t speak at all during the session but spoke volumes with his hands and touch. His pressure was always spot-on. His hands knew where to be at all times. He found spots on my body that needed work - spots that even I didn’t know about. Everything he did felt exactly right. He gave me a massage that I didn’t know I needed so badly, one that surpassed my every expectation, which was high given my friend’s recommendation. I was not only impressed, but deeply grateful to him for the ineffable and inexpressible, spiritual and giving aspects of his bodywork. He’s the real thing and a great bodyworker. He’s the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, something I don’t say lightly. I highly recommend him to any man looking for a truly and uniquely gifted master masseur.

David is the grand master of massage. His massage is like a religious experience! He’s an extremely sweet man who makes you feel like you’re the only other person on the planet when he works on you. I’ve sent all my friends to him and they always rave about him. Do yourself a favor and book a massage with David. He’s a godsend!

If you’re really into massage like me, then you’ve got to experience David’s. It’s extraordinary. First of all, his energy is centered and focused. He’s quiet but intense. He stays fully connected through every move, which I find rare. I was impressed by the level of connection he maintained throughout the massage, like he was reading not only my body but my mind as well. He seemed to know what to do and where to be at all the right times and he was always at the exact right pressure throughout too. I never needed to tell him a thing. I just laid on his table and enjoyed it all. The entire experience was not only therapeutic and completely relaxing, it was a fully holistic one as well. In addition, he has a great set-up in a nice new apt building that was easy to find. David is a true massage lover’s masseur, a must-see.

All around an awesome deep tissue massage from the perfect masseur in a cool space. I got my first massage from David today and the details are fuzzy cuz I tuned out shortly after I got on his table and quickly fell into a blissful state of heaven. Cloud 9 all the way. Highly recommended if you want a genuine massage!

I have a very active lifestyle and do CrossFit on a regular basis and needed a deep tissue massage. Not only was the experience relaxing but I felt a million times better after each session. He made sure I was always comfortable and the pressure was perfect. Highly recommended!
